Developed in France in the 1920s this stained-glass technique was first introduced into the United States by Associated Crafts® & Willet Hauser Architectural Glass. Similar to leaded glass, faceted glass is a multi-step process. The design possibilities are limitless with faceted glass. This technique requires colored glass to be cut and chipped giving it a jewel-like quality. Once the pieces are arranged a matrix of epoxy is composed and poured around the design. The designs used in faceted glass are often more abstract in appearance, through skillful manipulation of the glass. These traditional designs are made to be beautifully detailed pieces of art.
